  2. The Square Collection – Diagonal Bobble Stitch.

     diagonal bobble

    This is part of our monthly Blanket Club.  Patterns are released every month on the website – then published in a booklet after a year.

    The squares worked in DK measure about 4 ½” square – and the larger ones 8” square.  You could use 3 strands of DK together – working on 8mm knitting needles – and the square will be bigger.

     

    You will need;

    1 strand of double knitting to be worked on 4mm knitting needles – about 12g

    Or 2 strands of double knitting (equal to chunky weight yarn) to be worked on 6mm knitting needles – about 20g

     If you are using the double knitting weight of yarn, then use 2 strands together throughout.

    • If you are using the chunky weight of yarn, then use 1 strand throughout.
    • Remember to count all the rows as you work up the square.

    The technique you need to make the bobble is as follows – [knit 1, purl 1, knit 1, purl 1, knit 1, purl 1] all into one stitch.  Then slip the second stitch in over the last stitch – slip the next in line over the last stitch – then the next in line over, and again until you are back to just the 1 stitch.  Do this every place the pattern says ‘make bobble’.

    TIP – if you get lose your place ( it’s easy to gain a stitch if you don’t take enough of the bobble loops back over) – remember to create each bobble AFTER the column that the previous one is in – making it go in a diagonal slant.
